David Amess MP warns: "Don't write off people with autism"

David Amess MP is backing a National Autistic Society (NAS) campaign to stop adults with autism being written-off by the employment and benefits system. A new report by the NAS reveals a third of people with the condition currently live without a job and without benefits; many are forced to rely on family and friends for help. Mr Amess said: “People with autism have a huge amount to offer and we know that many want to work but are unable to get the help and support they need to fulfil their potential. I am pleased to support the NAS in this important campaign.”
